Volunteer Group Leader
OUTdooristas LGBTQ Women’s Outdoors Social Club
June 2019 to Present
I started this hiking and social group for LGBTQ women within our local area to create a fun, healthy, supportive venue to meet and build community. There were few ways to meet and support middle-aged LGBTQ women locally as this group rarely visits bars and are too young for retired LGBTQ groups. I organize and lead successful (average of 7 attendees per week) weekly hikes year-around at a variety of local parks. I also organize and lead many successful social events each month, including brunches and dinners with, usually, 8-30 attendees. During the pandemic, we met online through Zoom meetups. I run a fundraiser twice per year to cover the cost of using Meetup.com as a platform. I also gather more attendees through the friend-finding app Her. I uphold a list of rules to kindly but firmly ensure an inclusive and supportive community ethic.
